Wish you were here..knee deep in mud?

Staff at an Aylesford holiday firm swapped their sunny brochures for a mudbath as they took part in an Army obstacle race to raise almost £2,000 for Kent Air Ambulance.

The brave team at James Villa Holidays battled a 10km course including deep stench trenches, balance beams, blockade walls, wobbly bridges and a freezing ice crawl.

They successfully completed The Major Series, designed by British Armed Forces personnel, at Eridge Park set in 3,000 acres of hills, lakes, open parkland and mud.

The team were Rebecca Hinks, Donna Brincat, Gary Horsford, Dave Woollcott, Andrew Waters, John Campbell, Karl Greenslade, Malcolm Hoad, Mark Murphy, Jamie Whitebread, Shelley Kingsnorth and Judy Collins.

James Villa Holidays, based in Aylesford, has chosen Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance as its Charity of the Year.

In total, they raised £1,826 for the life-saving helicopter which relies almost entirely on donations and receives no statutory Government or National Lottery funding.
